    We all know of the most popular sports football, baseball and basketball, but what are some sports you like that don't get much love?

    Ooh, that one where you ski and shoot targets with a rifle. It's in the Olympics.

    That's some James Bond shit, right there.

    Judo. I fuckin' love watching Olympic Judo. In fact the last couple I've seen, the women's matches were more interesting than the men's. Maybe it was because of the weight divide, but the blokes just kept trying to bull rush each other but the sheilas were actually using technique.

    Rally racing. It is by far the most intense form of racing, and it requires a lot of quick decision making when you're making insane turns at high speeds on dirt, mud, or even snow.

    Australian Rules Football. I still have pretty much no idea how the sport works, but man is it fun to watch hammered with a bunch of drunk aussies. Which, from what I can tell, are the only people who watch Australian Rules Football.

    In the USA, it's Rugby. I love watching it when I'm overseas. Shocked it's not more popular here.

    I see more ads for lacrosse than rugby.
